Software, Computer-Aided Detection System, Image, Virtual Colonoscopy

Definition : Computer-aided detection system software designed for systems used to analyze images performed during virtual colonoscopy (i.e., CT or MRI colonography) and to control/monitor a limited number of their functions. This software is usually intended to work only with one or a few models of computer-aided detection systems, usually from the same manufacturer. The software performs a variety of algorithms to facilitate the analysis of the images with abnormalities (e.g., polyps) that may be indicative of colon cancer and the sending/receiving patient information from and to the local information system. The software is usually not available separate from the computer-aided system but may be updated (i.e., through the release of modified versions) during the life of the system. Virtual colonoscopy computer-aided detection system software facilitates the analysis of images intended for screening of malignant conditions of the colon, aid in the follow-up of patients, and/or help to determine cancer recurrence.
